I doubt one is much faster than the other (assuming you pick the same
kernel timer and file systems from equally modern versions).

The debian people might hate me for this, but I'd say they're pretty
close cousins. I don't think it matters much, one way or the other.

I happen to use Ubuntu LTS for all of my server stuff. Even if we can
update it for a full 5 years, we always update our stack to pull in
the latest LTS when it's available.

Also, we all run Ubuntu on the desktop, so we like that we have the
same env on the server.

So, I didn't answer your question, but there is just one more opinion.
